Long past its humble origins as a desert boomtown, Scottsdale has evolved into a world-class hub for food, wellness and golf getaways. And while the “links” in Scottsdale Links Resort refers to the last type of escape, since golf courses abound in its vicinity, this property does a pretty good job of hooking you up with numerous restaurants and spas, too. If you prefer more adventurous types of activities, take to McDowell Mountain or Pinnacle Peak for a hike. More of an architecture enthusiast? Visit the home where Frank Lloyd Wright spent more than 20 years.
Scottsdale is also known as an old-fashioned resort town, a “desert version of Miami’s South Beach,” in the words of The New York Times – and if you remain on-site, you’ll get a taste of this other side of the southwestern destination. Accommodations here are designed as peaceful, well-appointed retreats from the desert sun, with a full kitchen, and there are gas grills outside, if you’d like to host an impromptu barbecue. To help you cool off, a large turquoise pool occupies the center of the property, lined with loungers and stands of palms. Just call this stay the perfect local base – to a tee.

Once a sleepy town in the Arizona desert, Scottsdale has grown into a veritable oasis for rest and relaxation. From the charming sights of Old Town to its array of deluxe wellness destinations and golf courses, the city is a playground for grown-ups, brimming with wine bars, fine-dining rooms, upscale shops and art galleries. The hotel is located in the heart of it all, just minutes from the numerous spas and restaurants, and roughly a 40-minute drive to McDowell Mountain Regional Park, where you can hike, bike or horseback ride. For a day trip, head north to the Grand Canyon, or spend an afternoon taking a ride on a hot-air balloon.
How to Get There
Hated the steps, loved every thing else, was shocked by the deluxe features, hard surface counter tops, 9’ ceilings, huge walk-in closet, close to the interstate , protected/ covered deck, perfect shower, snack bar plus large dining area, ample parking, helpful staff
This property is in a great location to Westworld where we attended the Pinners conference. The 2 bedroom is spacious. When we were not at the conference the properties activities were super fun, yoga , water aerobics, fire pit singing, music bingo! The staff is exceptional. I would definitely recommend staying here.
Sufficient room, but appliances, furniture, beds and lamps substandard compared with accustomed resorts. Had family visit for dinner, too little of kitchen supplies. Buildings too close, felt "penned in." Noisy, airplanes flying over both taking off and landing. However, recreation facilities excellent.
Most likely would not stay here again.
